I am hoping to get some help regarding the error "VIDEO_TDR_ERROR" that I am experiencing right now. I'm playing games most of the time when I'm using the computer and the problem occurs when I'm playing games such as Disciples 3, Dragon Nest, RF online, Eden Eternal and when I'm playing games using the ps2 emulator pcsx2. The error starts with a black screen then few seconds later the cpu will boot.

Here is my System Information:

Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz 7.1 5.5
Memory: (RAM) 2.00 GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 220
System type: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit operating system
- Windows 7
- OEM

System Hardware Age: 3 Months
Age of OS: 2 Months
- I reinstalled it, a month after I bought the unit

Thank you,

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help

Trial and error. If the computer is under warranty I would use it.
